Entry to the viewing platforms is from the express elevator starting in the basement of the WFC shopping mall. Access is not very cheap, but the view is well worth it. Also the light design of the elevators is quite nice and feels a bit like being in a spaceship...

If you have been up high buildings in either KL, Yokohama, Melbourne this is much the same with little much else on the 100 th floor. It's up to individual taste. We were lucky with the weather but do not go on a dull day. Price 180 RMB.

This building has 100 floors.The lift is so fast that we will reach the 98th floor in may be 2 minutes.it is an experience of the height on a sunny day and not on a foggy day.

We actually viewed this tower from the observation floor on the adjacent Jin Mao Tower. It was fascinating to see window washers on WFC, going floor by floor on their platforms lowered and raised by cranes from the roof. The workers must have nerves of steel! This building adds to the iconic skyline of Shanghai, especially at night.

The Shanghai financial district skyline looks rather stunning seen from the Bund, especially at night when the buildings get lit up.

The tallest building in Shanghai is a must-visit for all who travel there. Floor 118 offers panoramic views of Shanghai after a short 55-second, 18 m/s elevator ride (fast!). Best on a day with no smog though! The line can be quite long though.

Incredible amount of sky scrapers and well worth a wander around. Plenty of sky scrapers that you can go up and see the view from the top

Although the entry is pretty expensive at 200 Yuan (28 Euro) but worth for me since it was first time in High speed elevator and very high skyscraper. Just a place to be in Shanghai as the landmark of the city.

Neighbourhood Profile
When people speak of Shanghai’s futuristic skyline, it’s the financial district of Luiazui they are speaking of. Shanghai’s most iconic buildings are located in close proximity to Lujiazui’s elevated ring road and swanky eateries. Sky-high shopping and chic bars fill the highrises around the area. As is characteristic of a world-class financial business district, some of Shanghai’s best malls and hotels can be found in the neighborhood. While everyone on the famous Bund side of the river gazes in awe at these amazing structures, all the buildings here, as well as Lujiazui’s riverside promenade, offer great views of the historic buildings all along the Puxi side. The Lujiazui park often hosts music festivals throughout the year, and park goers can party and stroll in the shadow of some of the world’s tallest buildings.
